Polyethylene matrix composite in the form of a continuous fiber enhanced the electrical conductive and strength properties with carbon nanotubes (MWNT). The composites were prepared using a conventional polymer fiber processing technology. The strength and electrical resistivity ( -cm) results related to a different CNTs’s volume fraction of these composites. As the monofilament yarns, the composite has young modulus of 439-589 MPa, tensile strengths of 62-72 MPa, and electrical resistivity at 5.87x102 -cm. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) demonstrated qualitative nanotubes morphology. This study found that the yarn can be obtained the mechanical and electrical properties by combining polymer composite /carbon nanotubes content.
